Fuller's releases new barrel-aged beer

11 August, 2011

Fuller’s has launched the third in its series of Brewer’s Reserve barrel-aged beers.

Brewer’s Reserve No 3 has spent 800 days maturing in old Auchentoshan whisky barrels.

Limited edition, numbered bottles are being sold through the Fuller’s brewery shop and online, priced £7.50.

The beer is in 50cl bottles and has a strength of 9% abv.

Head brewer John Keeling said: “We used a complex beer to begin with, and by ageing in the Auchentoshan whiskey barrels, we have added an extra dimension with a smoothness and texture unlike anything else out there.”

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
